Hi,

First, I'am so sorry for my bad english, but i do my best.

I have a pokeys56E my Problem:

I'am not able to Map an analog input (Poti on pin45) to the FeedOverride (DRO 821).

- NEW: Mach3 plugin: analog support (analog joystick, analog to DRO mapping, offsets and gains adjustment, automatic calibration)

How can i get it work?

Mach Version R3.043.062

Pokeys FW V3.0.30

Doesn't it work without Brains? Have anyone a Brain for me?

Hi, Harry

Although this plugin is in beta version, it still has some bugs. One of them was related to the analog to DRO mapping.
A new version of the plugin is expected to be released today together with a list of other minor and major fixes and improvements.

Hi, Matevž

Today? That's fine! My weekend is rescued...  ;)

Okay, sounds good. I worked 5 Days on my machine without results.

I thought I am too stupid to configured Pokeys for my Mach3.

Regards,
Harry

Today we released an updated version of the plugin.

Updates/changes/fixes:
  - Mach3 MPG jogging done by PoKeys device
  - Mach3 plugin - Selectable polarity of the emergency STOP switch
  - Mach3 plugin - SetIODevOutput bug fixed
  - Mach3 plugin - limit switch handling bug fixed
  - Mach3 plugin analog inputs now can be reset to inactive, fixed bug with DRO mapping
  - Mach3 plugin - reconnect on lost connection
  - PoKeys55 PoExtBus glitches fixed

One of the most noticeable feature is definately MPG jogging - if enabled, PoKeys handles the axes movement instead of Mach3 engine. This results in way more fluid and responsive movement of the axes under MPG jog. PoKeys devices support only continuous MPG jog, which is the most useful in everyday work.

The plugin requires PoKeys 3.0.31 firmware, available here: http://www.poscope.com/productattachments/index/download?id=29
Mach3 plugin 'beta': http://www.poscope.com/productattachments/index/download?id=75
Manual: http://www.poscope.com/productattachments/index/download?id=77

For those who own PoKeys56E devices, take a look at our new support for Cosm web service (our test feed is available at http://cosm.com/feeds/62592). PoKeys56E devices can now be very easily configured to upload current sensor value to Cosm, where they can be access from all over the world.

Hi, Matevz

Nice Job! it's amazing it works! Perfect!

The analoginput "to" DRO works very nice!

I have one Question:

Is there a Way to Map IO's to "User Buttons",

The Reason is my machine has much Buttons with VB - Scripts and this way maybe the easiest...

You can map digital inputs directly to Mach3 OEM buttons (codes from 1 to 2000). What are the user buttons codes in your case?
